London Brain Tumour Walk 2019

Rembrandt Remembers John and Michelle

The Rembrandt Homes team has signed up for the London 2019 Brain Tumour Walk, our team “Rembrandt Remembers” have made a commitment to honour the lives of John Westgate and Michelle Duncan(Marsman) by walking to raise money for research and support for those impacted by this disease.

John Westgate, vice president of Rembrandt Homes, lost his battle to brain cancer on September 21, 2017. John was consummate worker, friend, father, husband and grandfather. Nobody worked harder or cared more deeply for his family or friends. For the past 23 years he worked at Rembrandt Homes and found much happiness in his chosen career. He was well respected within the industry, and the "go to" person if you needed something done. We have chosen to honour John’s work ethic and determination by focusing on the future and how we can add to legacy by making a positive impact.

Michelle Duncan(Marsman), daughter of Tony Marsman. Michelle lost her short battle with brain cancer on October 21,2017. Michelle worked in the National Park system in British Colombia, she was a biologist and a lover of nature. A caring wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend the loss of Michelle has been truly felt by all who were lucky enough to know her. In order to honour Michelle’s caring nature and inquisitive spirit we will walk to aide in research and care options for victims of this disease.

We have decided to honour the lives of both these great people by joining together in remembrance and hope for the future to walk on June 9th.
